look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick creamy tan head that dies down slowly and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark roasted malts, vanilla, coffee and light chocolate.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has loads of roasted malts, some vanilla and light coffee and chocolate.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle

MAINE MEAN OLD TOM STOUT 10/28/14

Bottled 7/15/14. Label says to drink within 90 days, this is two weeks past that. Bought a month and a half ago. My bad.

Poured from the 16 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip.

a: Opaque black with a two inch tall tan head which receded rather quickly to thick surface foam and patchy lacing.

s; Vanilla and milk chocolate.

t: Vanilla and chocolate with moderate hop bite. Any lingering bitterness is leavened by the intense malt and vanilla flavors, although some persistent bitterness does build later.
'
m: Medium to full, smooth, lots of carbonation tingle.

o: Very good stout, the dark chocolate malt dominates the added vanilla.
